Paul Simon Announces First Hawaiian Shows In Over 50 Years

Paul Simon will return to Hawaii after a gap of more than a half-century to perform a couple of benefit shows in August.

The folk-rock legend’s concerts are scheduled for August 13 and 14 at Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s A&B Amphitheater and Yokouchi Pavilion.

All of the artist’s net proceeds will be donated to environmental organizations working in Hawaii.

Tickets for both shows go on sale to the general public Saturday, June 22 at 10:00 am HST at the MACC Box office, by phone at 808-242-SHOW or online at http://mauiarts.org.

The August concerts mark the first time Paul Simon has ever performed on Maui and his first Hawaiian shows since Simon & Garfunkel appeared at Honolulu’s HIC Arena in 1968.

While no longer touring, Paul Simon has stated his ongoing commitment to perform the occasional concert and to donate those earnings to philanthropic organizations.
